Muse O Mine O Muse O Mine | A Hubbers Hub Pages Tale

Zena Warrior Princess
Zena Warrior Princess
Keep PFC Bowie Burgdahl in your Prayers
Keep PFC Bowie Burgdahl in your Prayers

O muse of mine

O muse of mine

Now you dwell

In heart and mind


In heart your passion

Pumps my blood

In Artery and vein

Both love and hate

Or Peace and war

You breathe upon my soul

I contemplate your every pore

And out the words do flow


For without you Mega

How could Have I written Cheetah Moon?

Without you Loreli or Habee

The Cupboard Drawer it would be bare.

Without you BPOP, Tony, or my good friend AIM

Much of the scribbles I put here would never take their shape

Without you Jess and so many more

My humble words would just but bore..


But Muse o Mine, O Muse o Mine

Warnings you must heed

You cannot shape the tale;

For never for is it to you

To know what form you take.

For as the passion, or the spark

Begins to grow and grow

It’s through the Hammers twisted lens

All ideas they must go.


Much like the Warrior Princess

(The first sweet muse o mine)

All that you are, all that I see

All that I know and sense of thee

Forever, all in totality

Becomes at one with me.


So Muse o mine

Oh Muse o mine

I thank you one and all

For this Hammer would without you

Have a cold steel heart and dull worn mind

and useless as can be.


But know ye all that once you are

An old soldiers spark and flame,

No fan or follower more loyal

Will ever read your page….

Well now this was a most pleasant surprise. I like it my man. You are just full of surprises and your poetry is really awesome now. I think I remember a thread where the thing was a seed in your imagination yet to be born in the morning sun. I think you have many new muses there. Muses you know are supposed to be female, we have many here do we not? Don't you be kissin' on me now bigfoot. LOL Hooorah!

John, I am both humbled and proud to be one of your muses! Didn't know you composed verse, too - a true Renaissance man!


Hmrjmr1 profile image

Hmrjmr1 6 years ago from Georgia, USA Author

ralwus - By definition I would suppose they are female At one time, the Muses were the goddesses of inspiring springs, but they became the representatives of poetry, the arts and science and sources of inspiration. Homer refers to them as one Muse and as many Muses, living on Olympus. Hesiod refers to them as 9 daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who were born in Pieria. I know that the hint of suppose to be female is a reasonable quesry but safe it is that I look at whose ever's words for inspiration, I care not what the gender be and many of your words have inspired me. so a slap on the back and a Baghdad bump of thanks!

WOW! Bro' you just keep surprising me! I admire your talent in expression! I have to admit the first picture made me think of...... and as I realized just how long it's been since I had a hands on relation, but those empty places are filled by brothers and sisters I communicate with here and you are on my short list as are some you noted and the others I have met and follow for a short time so far but will grow to know as I have you and my Dear Breakfast Pop.

See you at the bar and we will slap our coins out on the cold wood then hoist a drink in remembrance of those who could not join us until this life has passed.

wow that is nice. I love the pictures and I strive to one day one of your muses...By the way are you a P.O.W?


Hmrjmr1 profile image

Hmrjmr1 6 years ago from Georgia, USA Author

Lady jane - Thank you so much for stopping by, Who says you're not one already? And no I am not nor have ever been a POW (lucky) but PFC Bowie Burgdahl is in Afghanistan. GBY!


ladyjane1 profile image

ladyjane1 6 years ago from Texas

Thank you Mmrmmr1 I appreciate that. The reason I mentioned it is because my father was a P.O.W in WWII for 2 years after he was captured by Germans. There are also a lot of military in my family like my nephew who is a navy pilot and was one of the first to go into Afghanistan along with a few other missions and who had a few close calls. Now he is a big shot Top Gun instructor in Nevada plus he is a substitute for the Blue Angels. When someone cant make it, he goes in. Makes us cringe but he loves doing it. Anyway, I enjoy your hubs.

Wow - I'm a bit slow lately - didn't know you put me at the top of your muses list - Thanks - I will repay you a thousand fold with dreams and delights of thought and actuality! Just look around and I'm there, in the lights glancing among the tree's branches, in the dappled brook that trills happily past you, in the slight breeze that cools your fevered brow - listen! the bird singing your secret soul name tells you how magnificent your life!

Hmrjmr, I haven't read any of your hubs for way too long. I did not know that you were a poet. I can not believe the one stanza ' all that you are, all that I can see, all that I know and sense of thee, forever in totality becomes at one with me.' Incredibly beautiful. Best hub poetry ever!

I'm back again just to say thanks to you John! Haven't seen you in the forums, hope you are happily spending some of that moola you've been raking in! Possibly vacationing in the Caribbean? But knowing you you're probably working with the vets and making someone else's life sunny!
